Khloe Kardashian's estranged husband Lamar Odom remembers very little about his recent health crisis as he is battling memory problems.

The reality TV star's former partner was found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada late last year after suffering a reported drug overdose.

Odom spent months in hospital as he recovered from kidney problems and a series of strokes.

He was released from hospital earlier this month, and is reportedly continuing with rehabilitation therapy as he attempts to get back to full health.

Kardashian has now revealed he is struggling with memory loss.

"He's doing really good. His long term memory is great. His short term memory isn't so good," Kardashian revealed during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"Every day he'll ask me, 'So what happened to me?' Like today specifically, he was like, 'How many tubes did I have in me again?'... And I'm honest. But it's good that he wants to know these answers. Before he didn't want to know, he wasn't ready to know.

"So it's great that he's at the point that he's ready to know everything happened."

However, Kardashian is convinced being out of hospital is doing him a lot of good because Odom is enjoying spending time with his loved ones.

"He loves family time. So he's been doing really good. I think it makes him feel good to be around everyone too and to just be in a happy environment over obviously where he was...," she said.

Kardashian recently admitted she feels incredibly proud of the former basketball player for making such good progress in his recovery.

Kardashian and Odom split in 2013, and the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has put their divorce proceedings on hold to allow the former sportsman to focus on his recovery.
